The group started an online petition, “Tell Fort Worth ISD To Stop Hiding Transgender Curriculum From Parents,” on Thursday. It already has over 250 signatures.
“Children are being taught — at age 12 under the guise of abstinence — about same-sex attraction, gender identity and gender expression,” said Zeb Pent, a spokesman for Stand for Fort Worth.
Forth Worth 2016 guidelines allow students identifying as transgender to use whatever restroom corresponds with their gender identity. Sex-ed programs in other states have also been causing chaos. A California school district told parents in February they can’t opt their kids out of a new sex education course covering abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues.
Delaware is considering adopting a policy allowing young students to choose whatever name, gender or race they want under a veil of school protection mandating the parents not be informed of these decisions unless the student explicitly wishes the parent be included.
A similar set of guidelines from Chicago Public Schools instructs staff to not tell parents about their child’s gender transition without the child’s permission.
Policy guidance from the Massachusetts Department of Education also instructs school personnel to speak with students first before discussing their gender nonconformity or transgender status with the student’s parent or guardian.
